This is cool, because Iron Maiden are one of the best live bands you’ll ever see. It is not cool, however, that the thing comes nowhere near New York.
Iron Maiden will make a brief return to the U.S. this September, playing seven specially selected shows en-route to Latin America where they will once again headline at the legendary Rock In Rio Festival, Brazil, on September 22.
The shows will begin with a first-ever visit to Raleigh, North Carolina, on September 3 at the Time Warner Cable Music Pavilion followed by a show in Nashville, where Maiden haven’t played in over 20 years, at the Bridgestone Arena on September 5.
There will also be shows in Kansas City, Missouri, at Sprint Center on September 7; St Louis, Missouri, at Verizon Wireless on September 8; and the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas on September 12.
Maiden plays Austin, Texas, at the 360 Amphitheater on September 10 — the first time the band have played in that city since the original “Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son Tour” 25 years ago!
Very special guests on all these dates will be Megadeth.
Maiden will also headline a very special event at the San Manuel Amphitheater in San Bernardino, California. “The Battle Of San Bernardino” will take place on September 13 with Anthrax, Testament, Overkill and Sabaton also on the bill.
Tickets go on sale next next week. For the most part.
